Vitarade® fueled by Vitargo®

Vitarade® fueled by Vitargo® in team and mixed sports

Inconstant intensity of the physical activity, changeable game pace and oftentimes long duration of the exercise requires glucose as a main source of energy released from liver and muscle glycogen1,2,3. Higher demand for carbohydrates during the activity is also caused by high frequency of the games and training sessions that makes post workout recovery and full glycogen replenishment difficult. Clinical trials performed by Danish scientists have shown that during the season glycogen stores often become almost completely depleted3,4 and high frequency of games and training sessions doesn’t allow to consume sufficient amount of carbohydrates from regular food. Moreover, the glycogen resynthesis rate in team sports is lower in comparison to endurance sports4, so there is need for a source of fast and easily assimilated carbohydrates. Delivering proper amount of high quality carbohydrates is very important, especially when the game pace is very high. In such game or training situations muscle and liver glycogen deplete at a higher rate and an athlete becomes tired1,5. Another important source of energy is phosphocreatine, which is produced from creatine in the body. It is a rapid energy source used during body accelerations or changing pace of the game on the field, court or track.6

To postpone fatigue inner energy stores like glycogen or phosphocreatine must be replenished along with providing carbohydrates during workout session or game. These carbohydrates must be delivered into the bloodstream quickly and shouldn’t stress the gastrointestinal tract. Moreover, to increase mental focus and lower the response time for changing pace of the game, proper amount of caffeine should be delivered. It will allow to maintain the high intensity during the whole time of the exercise.

In team or mixed sports proper and fast regeneration is crucial. It allows the athlete to cope with high frequency of games and high intensity training. Moreover, very high intensity and frequent changes of pace cause a lot of muscle microdamages, due to increase in catabolic activity and free radicals production5. Another important aspect is electrolytes loss with sweat, because training sessions or games are often performed in hot halls or sunny game fields and courts.

Vitarade® fueled by Vitargo® product line offers 4 various forms of products designed to provide complete support for professional athletes before, during and after the physical activity. All of Vitarade® fueled by Vitargo® products contain high molecular mass carbohydrates with low osmolality that ensures fast gastric emptying rate7 and quick replenishment of glycogen8 allowing to perform much more muscle work during subsequent workout sessions, team games or sport events9. It means that each of the Vitarade® fueled by Vitargo® product will replenish muscle and liver glycogen at maximum rate, while putting only a minimal stress on the stomach. Vitarade® fueled by Vitargo® products are perfect choice during preparation for the intense physical activity, during the intense exercise or competition and to ensure quick post workout regeneration.

High molecular mass carbohydrates contained in Vitarade® CL fueled by Vitargo®, Vitarade® EL fueled by Vitargo® i Vitarade® Drink EL fueled by Vitargo® are recommended before the activity, during the activity as an easy assimilated source of energy and after the activity to ensure quick post workout regeneration. Vitarade® Endurance Bar fueled by Vitargo® can be consumed before, during and after the physical activity. Due to content of caffeine10,11, creatine12 and whey protein13 it improves exercise capacity during prolonged workout sessions or competitions and speeds up the recovery rate.

3 various energy gels: Vitarade® CarboloaderGel fueled by Vitargo®,Vitarade® EnergyGel fueled by Vitargo® and Vitarade® RecoveryGel fueled by Vitargo® are perfect source of concentrated high molecular mass glucose polymers and physiologically active ingredients that guarantee optimal preparation for the intense physical activity, maximum support during the game or training, and very fast regeneration after hard training session or games. Vitarade® CarboloaderGel fueled by Vitargo® is designed for optimal body preparation for intensive training or sport event. Vitarade® EnergyGel fueled by Vitargo® contains the unique TRIPLECARB FORMULA that was formulated according to up-to-date scientific research 7,8,14,15 to support energy metabolism during the physical exercise in the best way. Vitarade® RecoveryGelfueled by Vitargo® delivers high quality collagen protein and antioxidant complex to ensure maximal regeneration rate even after the most intensive trainings or games. Moreover, in case of team and mixed sports it fully supports regeneration of microdamages that occurred during inconstant muscle work.
